Bump in was hard work but really fun. Lighting for the traverse stage is tricky for sure. I’ve enjoyed myself and I think my rig design will serve me well tomorrow in plot when we build the cues.

Show thread

Up bright and early because bump-in is today and I needed to buy set electrics bits.

Oh look, I actually took a photo of the set in between quite frenetic light plotting

Laser cut these signs for the set of As You Like It, that we’re starting to bump in tomorrow. Non-Australians may not be familiar with “The Big X”s which are common tourist attractions across our weird continent

Ok I’m super excited for the show I’m designing soon that’s going to have an actor wearing a crown/headpiece with ‘candle flames’ made with these addressable LEDs controlled by an ESP32 with WLED, receiving sACN DMX from my lighting console.

Here is the drawer of nice sorted and stocktaken (stocktook??) lens drawer. Profiles (Pacific and Prelude) PC/BiC lenses on the left, fresnels and PC washes on the right. Even found a few for Strand Minims, the little buggers. Short for “minimal light”. But they sure get toasty!

Got a par can where the retaining pin has been ripped out of the aluminium? This is how you repair it.

Hell yeah it’s good to be in the dome room again!
